MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. -- A 77-year-old Boynton Beach woman died in a crash in Martin County on Tuesday.

At 7:57 p.m. on June 4, 2019, the woman was driving a 2017 Hyundai northbound on the northbound exit ramp to SE Bridge Road from I-95.

A 2003 Ford truck was traveling eastbound on SE Bridge Road at the same time.

For unknown reasons, the Hyundai made an improper left turn in front of the truck, causing the front end of the truck to collide with the left side of the Hyundai.

Both vehicles traveled in a southeasterly direction, coming to final rest on the eastbound grassy shoulder of SE Bridge Road.

The woman suffered fatal injuries. Her passenger, a 68-year-old woman suffered minor injuries. The driver of the Ford truck was uninjured.
